The People groups Progressive faction (PDP) official up-and-comer, Atiku Abubakar, has faulted Nigerians for the ongoing difficulties confronting the country.
He made this statement on Tuesday during a meeting at the Christian Ecumenical Centre in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) with leaders of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN).
The former vice president said that Nigerians were to blame for their own problems because they voted for the All Progressives Congress (APC) in 2015, which brought them to power.
Atiku insisted that the APC has failed to address insecurity, reorganize the country, or combat corruption, and that the party did not keep the promises it made to Nigerians eight years ago.
After plunging Nigeria into trouble, the PDP presidential candidate stated that Nigerians were obligated to oust the ruling party and restore the PDP to power in 2023.
According to Atiku, there is a difference between the government that has been in place since 2015 and the one that has been in place since 1999.
He said. “You must realise that there is a difference between the government that ran this country from 1999 to 2015 and the government that has been running this country from 2015 till date.
“One example I want to give you; they said they need restructuring, did they restructure? So they told Nigerians what they wanted to hear and did a different thing when they got the opportunity. PDP is not like that.
“I stand before you here not to campaign but to tell you the honest truth, what you have presented to us is what I have always believed in, and if I have the opportunity, I swear to God, I will do it.
“The fundamental front lines that we have seen in the last seven to eight years only occurred because you wanted to change in 2015, and you elected the change you are seeing and experiencing now.”
